On your Retirement

I have made this card for a lady who will soon be retiring from the school where I work.  It is a 7″ x7″ card an the beautiful papers come from DoCrafts’ Simply Floral range (currently on sale on their website).

The large flowers were cut out from a 12 x 12 paper sheet and the sentiment was printed from my compter and die-cut.  I added the gems from my stash.

Camping sleepover invitation

We have had a manic weekend at Leona’s, which all started with 10 children (as well as my own) coming to camp in the garden on Friday night.  This is the invitation I made using a Daisy Trail digikit called Summer Camp.  Much fun was had by all and we were blessed with warm, dry weather.

I was glad to get to bed as Hubby was in a tent in the garden too!

Today’s card is mage using vintage Hunkydory.  It is a card made for a lady leaving my workplace for a new job.  I have brushed all the edges of the pieces with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink and finished the card with my favourite string – bought from the supermarket!

Gorgeous girl

Today is my baby girls’ 10th birthday.  I shred hre card a few weeks ago but am posting this one today made with a MO Manning image that reminds me of her; my daughter always seems to have her head in a book!  I think red and blue is my favourite colour combination on cards.
